We are down to our last dozen nests here in Calis (from an almost record 32!). The last adult turtle emerged on 19 July. Nearly a thousand hatchlings have already reached the sea here. We expect the last nests to hatch by mid-September. We are also still encountering “secret” nests that we first discover when the hatchlings begin to emerge. And, of course, we are battling the usual beach bar and restaurant “expansions” on the beach. Our information booth is open every night and we have met and informed a bunch of interesting (and interested) people.
We earned a big breakfast at our camp after a big night shift and our early morning patrol
